Secret Place #1- Murfreesboro at my feet

Imagine a place...
in the flat city of Murfreesboro, just 3 miles from the MTSU campus where you can stand at the edge of a 300 foot cliff, overlooking a blue-green lake, with a commanding view of the sunset and the 'Boro city lights at night. A place that seems perpetually breezy, completely private, where mountain goats walk along the cliff edges and where it's so quiet, you can occasionally here voices from a mile away. On a clear day, you can see 25 miles from horizon to horizon. Yes, this place exists, I go there often.

We all need secret, quiet and beautiful places to go. It's especially nice when such places are 10 minutes from home. Only I have the secret passage to get there, and it's only accessible via my magic carpet ride.

I must know where this place is located. I've been looking for a good spot in Murfreesboro to watch sunrises/sunsets (excellent for dates) and I can't seem to find one.

This view is incredible, and I'm a little ashamed that I've lived here for 2 years and never found it.

Hi William, Awesome Blogs! Can you give a location on where this sunset place is. Today is my 13 yr anniversary and would love to go here. We've been in TN for 10 years and haven't found an amazing spot. Need your help!!!!!

I tried to take the magic carpet ride and the ride is down. I'd like to see a "Whole New World". Please William, if you could help me, I would greatly appreciate it.
